How to remove specific item from an array using JavaScript?

Remove specific item from an array in JavaScript

In this tutorial, you are given an array. Write a JavaScript program to remove specific item from the array.


To remove a specific item from given array, we can use Array.filter() method. Call filter() method on the given array, and pass a function that returns false for the specific item, or true otherwise. filter() method returns a new array with the specified item removed from the contents of original array.


1. Remove item "apple" from the fruits array.

function removeSpecificElement(item) {
    if (item != this) {
        return true;
    } else {
        return false;

names = ["apple", "banana", "apple", "cherry"];
output = names.filter(removeSpecificElement, "apple");
